The Black Entertainment Television awards which celebrates mass achievements in black entertainment, also known as the BET Awards, has finally released a full list of nominees for 2017.
As a Mzansi platform, it would be only be fair for us to share the Best International Act: Africa list with you. The nominees are:
In fact, what a wow for this entire list! Babes Wodumo is the only female artist nominated and we bow down to her as she is pretty much competing with the top boys on the continent. It’s quite tricky trying to figure out who would take this one as all these artists have given us hits between April 2016 to March 2017.
Last year South African DJ, Black Coffee, took home the award and has since proved to us why he was well deserving of it. This list is full of heat and well every one of them deserves to win, but it would be cool if it could come home to Mzansi again, wouldn’t it?
The BET Awards are set to take place Sunday, June 25th at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and will broadcast across Africa on BET (DSTv channel 129) June 27th at 20:00 CAT.
As we anticipate one of the biggest days in black entertainment, hold thumbs! Congrats again to all our African artists.
